Sydney University Soccer Football Club (SUSFC) Women’s team will celebrate Football Federations Australia’s (FFA) Female Football Week with a match against Illawarra Stingray’s next Sunday, March 13.
The Rays will host our defending premiers at Balls Paddock next weekend on the final day of the Female Football Week which comes after International Women’s Day and post the Matilda’s successful Rio Olympics qualification.
The week was launched by FFA Chief Executive Officer David Gallop.
“We are proud that more than 20% of our entire participation base of outdoor club players are female. No other footy brand can compare with that,” Gallop said.
“Females represent the fastest growing segment in our participation base. “Girls starting out in football have a pathway that goes to World Cups and Olympic Games, and there are fantastic role models in the Westfield Matildas, who are on show at the moment.”
The first grade match will kick-off at 3pm.
